Tuesdqy, JulyJ 7, 1973 23 SAIGON (UP1) - North Vietnam skipped a meeting of thfr joint recovery team for American and Communist dead and missing troops, today over protests from the U.S. delegation. . the Hanoi delegation, citing "internal problems," sent word i5 minutes before the scheduled ! start of the four-party Joint Military Team (JMT) meeting that it would not be there, the U.S. delegation said. Members of the other three Program Bogs Down Over U.S.-Hanoi Rift delegations—the United < States, South Vietnam and the Viet Cong—were on hand for the meeting, the U.S. delegation said. None Of the parties elaborated on the reasons for Hanoi not showing up. However, relations between the U.S. and North Vietnamese delegations have worsened over the past 5% weeks because of a dispute over regulations governing JMt flights between Saigon and Hanoi. • No turtle has teeth, whether it be a sea turtle, a tortoise or a fresh-water terrapin. The name Theodo^ s pomes from the Greek and means "gift of the gods," On June 8, an attache case belonging to a Hanoi delegate exploded during the return flight of the regular weekly run to Hanoi and back, injuring seven people. U.S. investigators said it contained some kind of incendiary device. Thereafter, the U.S. delegation demanded that all delegations sign a guarantee each week that they are not carrying flammables or explosives. The Hanoi delegation has refused on grounds that the U.S. demand was unilateral. The result has been that each weekly flight since June 8 has been canceled. Monday, the four-nation international truce team resumed activities for the first time in nearly two weeks and ordered 18 investigations of alleged cease-fire violations. Ten of the probes by the International Commission • of Control and Supervision (1CCS) were requested by the South Vietnamese government and eight by the Viet Cong. The infractions ordered investigated by the ICCS allegedly occurred between May 30 and June 24, truce team sources said. The two sides have accused each other of hundreds of violations since the cease-fire took effect Jan. 28. Among the latest probes requested was the alleged bombing by South Vietnamese Air Force planes of a Viet Cong-controlled airstrip in Kon* turn Province in the Central Highlands about 275 miles northeast of Saigon. WED., JULY 18th Cambodia Establishes First Draft Since Start of War PHNOM PENH (UP!) - The Cambodian government, under growing pressure from insurgent . Communist forces, introduced conscription today for the first time since war erupted three years ago and overhauled its military machinery. Announcements said Cambodia also would establish a council of war and appoint a chief of staff to coordinate relations between the army and the government. The draft wilt require all men between the ages of 18 and 35 to serve in the army or carry a draft registration card. The decision to introduce the draft came Monday during a meeting of the ruling High Political Council, which consists of President Lon Nol, Prime Minister In Tarn and members Sisowath Sirik Matak and Cheng Heng. Up to now, Cambodia has fought only with volunteers, but heavy casualties and desertions seriously depleted army units.

Jffisser UNION OPTICAL CO. There are now about 230,000 men in the army, including about 40,000 "phantom" troops —the nonexistent soldiers that army commanders added to unit rolls in order to gain larger payrolls. The government has tried to cut the number of these nonexistent troops, but with little success. The appointment of a chief of staff apparently was intended to increase the effectiveness of over-all national defense. Diplomatic sources said govern ment authority over the armv has deteriorated along with the military situation. Meanwhile, fighting and moro U.S. air strikes continued on all sides of the Capital. Heavy Fighting The Cambodian military high command said heavy fighting went on Monday night and today about 11 miles southwest of Phnom Penh along Highway 3. In an • unusual reference to American bombing, the command said, "Our troops (along Highway 3) were strongly supported by aircraft." The sound of bombing was clearly audible throughout the night near Phnom Penh.
